Teaser Thursday ~ Sea Witch

Teaser Thursday ~ Sea Witch


I had Random.org select a %, and it selected 51%.

He hands me a red tulip, and I immediately sink into him. Impossibly, this new shirt smells of salt and limes and the sea despite being freshly clean and scratchy with starch.

Teaser Thursday ~ Wish for a Witch

Teaser Thursday ~ Wish for a Witch


I had Random.org select a page number and it decided on page 130.

Small lizard-like creatures peered from the shadows of false logs and clumps of grass. Salamanders, maybe, or perhaps basilisks? Sylphine had heard the names but wasn’t sure which was which or even if they were remotely alike. Anyway, they were a bit dull and clearly only there to make up the numbers.

Teaser Thursday ~ Hunted

Teaser Thursday ~ Hunted


I had Random.org select a percentage, and it selected 32%.

The routine was the same each time; they set out to follow the disused trail. It led on for about fifteen minutes before the path started breaking apart and becoming confused by phantom trails. When they reached a patch where the road forked, they would choose one, but no matter which track they pursued, it soon vanished into the jumbled confusion of the woods.

Teaser Thursday ~ Don’t Tell the Bridesmaid

Teaser Thursday ~ Don’t Tell the Bridesmaid


Random.org had to select a page number and it went with page 263.

Mum trusted us. If we didn’t go to school she would probably find out and then we would have to endure a living death of no MAZZO, no TV, no SKYPE and no biscuits for at least a week. So, with great reluctance, I hauled Stevie out of the Mob and got us both to school before the bell went.

Teaser Thursday ~ Monster

Teaser Thursday ~ Monster


I had Random.org select a page for me, and it decided page 21 was perfect (and I agree).

I was in the field at the top of the drive, walking the school Newfoundland, Brody, when I saw it again. And again, all was silent. The birds had stopped.
The monster.

Teaser Thursday ~ You May Now Kill the Bride

Teaser Thursday ~ You May Now Kill the Bride


I had my fiance select a % and he selected 54%.

And for the first time since Marissa disappeared, I thought of that wedding at this lodge all those years ago, and the sisters who went over the cliff.
This is a cursed place, Grandpa Bud had said.

Teaser Thursday ~ Isadora Moon Goes on a School Trip

Teaser Thursday ~ Isadora Moon Goes on a School Trip


Since today is 2-8, I decided page 28 would be nice.

I looked at the black clouds outside and at the raindrops running in streaks down the windows.
‘We will have to take umbrellas,’ I said.
‘Ah, yes!’ said Dad, suddenly cheering up. ‘I can use my new, fancy black on with the pointed top!’
‘And I can use my one with the bat ears!’ I said excitedly.

Teaser Thursday ~ The Broken Girls

Teaser Thursday ~ The Broken Girls


I first let Random.org select a %, but it didn’t go to anything fun, so I decided to pick one myself, 3%, which had a really interesting part.

She’d always known the monsters were real.
And they were here.
The girl looked into the darkness and screamed.
